Danielle had a lot of fun doing a 'Project Life' style folio with Pink Paislee's Portfolio chipboard album. The Portfolio range of papers suit the album inserts perfectly, and make the addition of small photos and journaling spots quick and easy. A few random embellishments later, a few memories down on paper and a sweet album is created!
Sue loves the Heidi Swapp Memory File System. It allows you to add so many more photos to a project than you normally would be able to. Sue loved the fotostack concept and happily created away, layering patterned paper, photos and embellishments to record a wonderful weekend spent at 1770, recently. In fact Sue got so carried away, her fotostack got quite bulky and so she decided to keep it as a mini album rather than incorporating it onto a page as she originally planned. Sue loves the new Heidi Swapp Color Shine and has sprayed the scalloped ribbon with the Gold Lame colour. Sue says the product is divine and one she plans to keep in her stash for a very long time!
Check out the gorgeous layered, patchwork effect that Janna Werner - - has created with this funky take on the Pink Paislee Portfolio album. Love it, Janna!
Alexandra Sirugue-Macleod shares with us this gorgeous page, simple yet so effective, created with Pink Paislee's Portfolio line. You can find more of Alexandra's creations here.
Kim Jefferies wanted to find a storage solution for her son’s artwork and she cleverly designed a folder using a Vintage Chic Memory file. As Kim’s son has so many pieces of artwork, she sometimes takes photos of them with her phone so she doesn’t have to store them all. Kim created a mini folder to store the printed photos. Kim also added a mini Vintage Chick Memory File and a No Limits Memory File to increase the storage space. Kim has used Color Shine to alter the look of some of her embellishments. Thanks so much Kim for allowing us to share your gorgeous work!
Pink Paislee never fail to create amazing coordinated ranges that are so versatile ; and Vintage Vogue is a perfect example of this. Louise loved creating with this range, she especially loved the colours of this range, where less is definitely more.
Suz used the Heidi Swapp ‘No Limits’ range, perfect for recording the memories of skateboarding sons and their friends. The funky instaframes are a cool touch, and she loves the freedom of the Buzz Words titles.
Today we have 2 gorgeous layouts from the talented Stacey Young a member of the Pink Paislee Design Team. For this particular layout Stacey has used the wonderful Spring Jubilee Collection to complete this layout [based on a page maps sketch]
For this wonderful layout Stacey has used the fabulous Declaration Collection. This layout will be included in a Pink Paislee Declaration Collection booklet so do keep your eye out for it.
We loved this beautiful layout by PP DT member Corrie Jones, using the new Portfolio collection. We love how she has stacked the photo frames and the hundreds of butterflies give the page movement and whimsy.
And a final layout from Corrie – in this gorgeous page she has used some of the fabulous She Art range by Christy Tomlinson.
Kim has used the Prairie Hill 6x6 paper pad to great effect on this layout by layering various of the different papers to create an interesting mat behind the photo. Kim says that she has developed a real appreciation for the smaller scale of pattern on the 6x6 papers and really enjoys using them now on her layouts. Kim has also used the Mistables mask to create the inked diamond pattern in the background.
Louise adored the soft pinks, blues and neutrals of the Pink Paislee London Market range, yet still wanted to create a slightly masculine layout with it. By using a dark base and painting it with iron and copper reactive paint, it gave the layout an interesting base that was softened with fussy cut flowers and handmade, dimensional corner borders. By combining the papers with some Prima flowers and a metal light charm, the effect is soft and sweet while remaining neutral.
Kim is also a member of the Pink Paislee Design Team and she has kindly shared some more of her beautiful work with us. She has used Spring Jubilee in the first layout and a mixture of Indigo Bleu and Prairie Hill ranges on the page directly above.
Amazing designer Karola Witczak has done what she does best with these three amazing projects for Pink Paislee. With diecuts, punches and a lot of dimension and layering, she’s created interest with simple repetition of the heart shapes in the tag and frame gift set. Her Best Friend box uses the London Market range to create a stunning, vintage gift box full of detail and sweet little touches.
Maria Featon has created this stunning layout featuring lots of handstitching and some amazingly detailled Twiddleybitz chipboard that co-ordinate perfectly with the softness in the Pink Paislee papers. The flower clusters add balance and dimension and the fussy cut details and subtle inking add softness and detail.
The colours theme of the Vintage Vogue line from Pink Paislee is such a delight! It takes you right back in time but still perfectly blends in with today's photos. In this layout, Iris simply takes a few pieces from the ephemera pack and combines it with a few other elements such as a wooden bike shape and a few gems plus a butterfly and she already has a quick and easy but colourful and detailed layout for her daughter.
Here is another example from Iris on how easy it is to make a layout with the Vintage Vogue line from Pink Paislee.
Pink Paislee Nantucket could be considered a feminine beach/summer range with the large amount of pink that is used in this range. However, Kim has shown that being more selective about the elements used, it is definitely suitable for the boys and men in our lives too. Kim has used a large selection of the Ephemera to create the cluster on the right of the photo, carrying it across with two layered elements on the left side to bring focus to the photo strip.
Also from Kim, also using Nantucket but here she explores the more feminine side of the range as she documents her amazing weight loss journey.
This beautiful layout was created by Jessy Christopher - a preschool teacher & an avid scrapbooker in Malaysia. According to Jessy, what she loves the most about scrapbooking is that it allows her the freedom to express herself in a creative form. We think she did that beautifully in this Pink Paislee layout where she created a background with lots of misting. For the journaling, I created lines using paint and also corrugated board.
Pink Paislee design team member created this stunning layout using the Sweetness range. We love how she has reproduced a stylised version of the photo on the page with the heart outline and the strips representing the brick walls. This is one of those layouts where the more you look the more you see!
While other people make year-end albums and pages, Iris makes it easier on herself by making one in advance. Here is a sample of how you can prepare for the coming year's events and photos.
This portfolio album from Pink Paislee comes with transparent sheets in different sizes. You can simply add scraps of papers from coordinating lines to come up with a simple design.
Once you have your photos, all you need to do is insert it in the slots and you are done.
Louise loved the subtle colouring of the Pink Paislee Nantucket range, so much so that she purchased the 12 x 12 pad of papers! What also attracted Louise to this range was the non theme design of the patterned papers, the design of the Nantucket range is so versatile that it would suit Layouts and cards for both sex's and all age groups. Louise has kept the design of her layouts simple and relatively unadorned, as the pattern of the papers was just too lovely to hide.
Polka dots will get Leeann’s attention any time. She adores this particular line named Soirée by Pink Paislee and found that it’s not just for scrapping about birthday parties. The patterned papers are just gorgeous and so is the colour palette. Because she wanted to use a little bit of each one, Leeann decided to go with creating the chevron pattern.
This gives you the perfect opportunity to use multiple patterned papers. Leeann finish this double off by creating focus around the photo, using pattern paper punch circles, chipboard accents and created small embellishing clusters.
We have the most stunning creations by Karola Witczak who also happens to be on the Pink Paislee design team. On this page Karola has used a mixed of products from vintage vogue, Nantucket, butterfly garden, Junque and the wood shop alphabet.
On this page Karola has used the Soiree collection. The design and details are just amazing, love the clear stitched pocket filled with the mini notes and labels, the arrangement of banners and flags and finally the white paint dots.
Karola made this beautiful card using the mistables, soiree and Nantucket collection. Thank you so much Karola for letting us share some of your stunning creations.
Louise rarely creates with this style of patterned papers; however in saying that she has decided she may very well have to change that as she just loved creating with this range of Pink Paislee.
The coordinated range of embellishments are just perfect and make the creation of a layout or card so so much easier, especially for someone who struggles with patterned paper as Louise confesses she does! To add a little dimension Louise has used some wonderful Martha Stewart punches to create simple embellishments out the patterned paper.
As with the first layout, Louise has kept embellishment of this page to a minimum; as the patterned paper is so beautifully designed and doesn't require it.
Suz used the gorgeous Nantucket range, and in contrast to Lou above, she loved the embellishments so much she wanted them to speak for themselves so ended up using no patterned paper! The patterns are represented though, in the cute hexagon Chip Tiles that Pink Paislee have introduced with this range. She misted the wood shapes in co-ordinating tones of Glimmer Mist and Chalkboard, and layered the wood title with one from the Bling Stickers set.
Thank you to the amazing talent Steph Devlin for sharing with us this beautiful Pink Paislee layout featuring her gorgeous youngest daughter. Steph has used the Butterfly Garden range in a way that emphasises its softness and beauty.
Delicious and delightful – Pink Paislee’s new lines might just fulfil your every scrappy wish! Click here to see them all.
Louise W loves the printer trays and has done a number of them, but this one is a special gift for her mother. Having very few family photo's to access from her mothers childhood makes this one a very personal reminder of the past, while including some beautiful details from the scrapbooking present.
Caz has been minding a friends kombi for a few months and finally got up the courage to drive it last week. She drove a friend and their 6 kids (3 each) to the ice skating rink. The kids bounced up and down on the very well sprung seats and sang all the way there (very loudly and out of tune). As they had nicknamed the Kombi "Little Miss Sunshine", any song with the word "Sunshine" in it was fair game. Caz chose the cute summery Hometown Summer range from Pink Paislee to scrap the event.
If there is a colour that always grabs Janine's attention, it is yellow!! It screams happiness to her, so she immediately fell in love with the oh so cheerful Soiree Collection by Pink Paislee and knew that yellow had to feature predominantly in her page. What Janine loved was the inclusion of the grey in the palette of brights, as it offsets all the brights beautifully, supplying the perfect contrast to the page.
Janine had lots of fun using Martha Stewart punches to add interest to the borders of her papers before layering them and clustering her embellies. The dimensional stickers were a fabulous touch to the page and the new tissue paper is wonderful for gathering for a little skirt under her photos. This collection is a "Sheer Joy" to work with
Seems Like the lovely Anna from Poland has a new collection to adore :))) It's SWEETNESS by Pink Paislee - and how SWEET is this layout. Anna also used Hambly overlays and some Glimmer Mists to make this gorgeous layout of her son Jeremy.
Pernilla created this amazing 3D star from Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology papers and decorated it beautifully with Prima flowers. This is just such an elegant project and we thank you for sharing it with us.
Wendy from Ontario, Canada has used the Pink Paislee Old School Collection to create this eye-catching sports themed layout. Thanks for letting us share your lovely work with our readers, Wendy.
This stunning layout was created by Tara Orr, using the Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology line. It is so sublime and beautiful and her choice of colours to customise her paper is stunning. Thanks so much Tara for sharing this page with us.
A big thankyou to Danielle Flanders from New York who is one of Caz's favourite scrappers for allowing us to showcase her gorgeous cards using the new Soiree range from Pink Paislee. We love all the tiny details that Danielle adds into her cards. scrunched tissue paper, jewelled pins, twine bows. Each card is a little piece of art.
The warm, earthy colours of the Old School range were the perfect compliment to these photos of Louise's son's first day at school. By adding smears of acrylic paint and distressing ink, she added interest and grunged up the layout to suit her 'rough-and-ready' boy's fearless attitude.
Pink Paislee Hocus Pocus inspired Iris Uy to create this page for her daughter during her latest Trick or Treat activity. The Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology paper was a perfect base for this page because she easily blended in the colours of Halloween into the paper using distress inks over the resist images.
Anne Jo Lexander created this striking layout using Hocus Pocus papers and alphas. We love how this range can work not just for Halloween but lots of other themes as well – great for teens and party pages!
Stacey Michaud is a designer for Pink Paislee and considers herself quite lucky to be able to play with such amazing products. She used the Hocus Pocus line to create a non-Halloween layout. The Hocus Pocus Arsenic arch was hand cut from a 6X6 sheet of paper and gives her title a clear starting point. She layered lots of stickers and rub-ons to add color and interest!
The gorgeous layout by the talented Kathleen Glossop shows the versatility of the Old School range, proving it's not just for school photos! with clever layering and small clusters to grab interest and draw your eye across the page, Kathleen has managed to keep the focus on the photo without overpowering it.
This gorgeous layout from Agnieszka Piskorz really shows off the diecut paper, stickers and co-ordinating elements from the Pink Paislee Old School collection. By creating her own flowers to use as a focal point, your eye is drawn back to the photo that has been cleverly framed with the banner stickers.
Hero Arts stamps always give a beautiful crisp image when used. Sue loves to heat emboss the images to create a lovely glossy look. Sue has quite a collection of branch stamps and this holly flourish was the perfect addition! It is lovely to hang things off such as the cute baubles cut from patterned papers and embellished. You could also hang stars or snowflakes for a different look.
For an eight year old boy, the world is pretty black and white. Things are either ‘awesome’, or ‘they suck’. This layout is just a small reminder of the fashion do’s and don’ts in his world – good to have because even since creating this layout this list will have changed.
Suz has had some fun with the gorgeous Pink Paislee Artisan Elements in this layout – Glimmer Misting the flourish and allowing the ink to settle in the grooves for a great contrast, and inking and heat embossing the alphas for a grungy look.
Kathie loves any type of ledger paper. In her layout “You & Me”, she’s combined the ledger paper from Pink Paislee’s Starlight range with other coordinating papers from the collection. In keeping with the office product theme, she’s backed the entire layout on some blue text paper from October Afternoon. The embellishments are a mix of BasicGrey (Ambrosia and Max & Whiskers) and Jenni Bowlin.
We thank Wendy Smith from Tasmania for the above two layouts. She has used the 365 Degree range for her Day in the Life page. Inking and distressing combined with colourful patterned papers from the range makes this such a great boy’s page. And look at her clever stamping in the background.
The lovely Kim Arnold was invited by Pink Paislee to be a Guest Artist for Pink Paislee, and was sent products from the beatuiful new Sweetness line to play with. The above three amazing layouts are just some of what she produced for them – and we thank her for allowing us to share them here.
Suz has combined the gorgeous 365 Degrees range with the stunning new Pink Paislee Artisan Flourishes. On this page she has turned the uses for a couple of elements around – she has used the journalling blocks as light and shade instead of patterned paper, and used the full sheet of patterned paper for journalling.
Though you can do almost anything to the Artisan Elements, here Suz has left them mostly plain, just highlighting sections with a silver foil marker. The fun cork buttons and transparent border stickers complete the page.
Caz wanted to use the Pink Paislee die cut paper in a slightly different way. She saw this idea on a layout while browsing the net and decided to use it on this layout about what her son thinks is cool now he has turned 9. Caz studded the pleated border with brads to give the page a more 'blokey' feel and mixed 3 different types of letter stickers for some a more eclectic look.
We thank Jana Eubank for allowing us to share this stunning page. Jana has used 365 Degrees and lots of the fabulous emebellishments offered iwth it – from the cork buttons to the stunning large red Press-On design on the left of the page. Though it’s a busy page it’s not overcrowded, and everything leads the eye to the delightful photograph.
A huge thankyou to Amanda Muirhead from Canada for sharing this layout of her cute little soccer star. To quote Amanda "I am excited to show off Pink Paislee’s new Starlight collection. These new papers were so much fun to work with.
I found that many elements from other Pink Paislee lines worked perfectly with Starlight. I used the cork from the 365 degrees line and a brad from the Bayberry Cottage line. For the title, I used three different Pink Paislee alphabets. Instead of O’s in the title, I used stickers from the Starlight collection.
We also have Amanda to thank for this gorgeous canvas she created for her Mum for Mothers Day from the Pink Paislee Bayberry range.. It was a project for the Pink Paislee Inspiration tour and if you visit Amanda's fabulous blog you can find step by step instructions on how to make your own canvas.
